A teeming, cheering crowd of 1 million filled Times Square as the ball dropped in Times Square, as New York City and the world said goodbye to 2012 and welcomed a new year and a clean slate for 2013.
The ball has dropped in front of a throng of 1 million in Times Square, and 2013 has arrived.
The New Year’s confetti that blankets Times Square at the start of every year has been put to the test, and is now ready to go airborne.
Little strips of documents that were obviously shredded for a reason have ended up raining down from the windows in the city’s ticker tape parades.
The magical moment at midnight on New Year’s Eve with the confetti flying over Times Square doesn’t happen without some practice.
